The Scottish Schools' Football Association host their Under-18 trials at Inverclyde this weekend. Forty boys from all over Scotland will be watched and the squad will be cut to 16 afterwards. The Under-18s open their season against England at Bradford on February 18.

Meanwhile, only half the 18 members of Scotland's Under-15 schoolboys' squad, who finished runners-up to England in the Victory Shield, have been snapped up by professional clubs. Of the nine players, Rangers have taken four. Mark Brown, of Holy Cross High, Darryl Duffy, of Linwood High, Scott Matheson, of Lossiemouth High, and Chris McLeod, of Musselburgh Grammar, are at Ibrox.

Ross Ballantyne, of Holyrood Secondary, and Martin Brady, of St Andrew's, Saltcoats, have joined Celtic; Emmanuel Panther, of John Paul Academy, has gone to St Johnstone; David Wilson, of Claremont High, has joined Hearts and Mark Wilson, of St Ambrose High, has gone to Dundee United.
